Toledo, Ohio-June 15, 2018: Ryan Litt, Matt Dimit and Jacob Thomas captured feature wins on Hemelgarn Racing/All American Coach/Super Fitness Night at Toledo Speedway Friday evening. Ron Hemelgarn and Jim McGuire of All American presented the trophies in the Monroe Asphalt Winner’s Circle.
The always-exciting qualifying session for the Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper Winged Sprints saw Brian Gerster fly to a new 1 lap mark with an astounding 12:096. The 30 lap main saw Anthony McCune lead the first 6 laps until his car came to a stop on the front straight. Kevin Feeney inherited the lead and took off on the restart, only to have his engine let go 7 laps later. A fast-closing Ryan Litt now had the top spot and took off on the next restart. Litt was out front by almost a half-lap until Kyle Edwards took a violent hit into the turn 3 foam blocks, bringing out the red flag on lap 26. Edwards emerged from his car, obviously a bit shaken. Litt again zipped away in the final 4 laps to take the win over Ryan Gillenwater, Derek Snyder, Jimmy McCune and Bobby Santos. McCune drove the final laps on a flat left front tire and fell back while running second. Doug Dietsch, Edwards, Feeney, Frank Neill and Gerster rounded out the top ten. Gerster dropped out of the feature on lap 8. Anthony McCune and Gillenwater took the heat wins.
A thrilling finish in the 40 lap ICAR All-Star Modified feature race saw Matt Dimit hold off a great effort by Kyle Purvis to take the big victory. Doug Myer, Greg Fullarton, Blake Rowe, Jason Timmerman, Damon Breedlove, Chad Poorman, Johnathon Martin and Tim Burkett completed the top ten. Martin and Rowe took the heat wins. Burkett set fast time at 16:552.
Jacob Thomas became the third and final leader of the 20 lap ARCA Factory Stock feature, grabbing the win as he held off Ethan Stadniczuk and Jesse Carrillo. Fourth was Craig Osenbaugh and fifth was Matt Ringger, followed by Randy Padgett Jr., Kyle Worley, Mike Miller, Adrian Sharp and Ryan Mallory. Ringger and Thomas notched heat wins.
